Weber scores two; Canadiens snap skid, beat Panthers 5-1

Montreal Canadiens usually cool customer Carey Price smashed his stick twice against his goalpost in a fit of anger during his team’s loss to Anaheim last week

The big defenceman said the victory was satisfying, but cautioned that the Canadiens still have a lot of work to do after opening the season with a 1-6-1 record.

Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens face off in a Tuesday night National Hockey League regular season matchup.

The Canadiens looked disorganized on their first two advantages, but Alex Galchenyuk and Weber scored power-play goals to put Montreal ahead. If the crowd wasn't into it after the first Habs goal, the building was certainly roaring by the time Brendan Gallagher's quick shot beat Florida netminder James Reimer for the insurance marker. Carey Price made 26 saves and Jonathan Drouin had two assists. That's what we need to be successful. It's important for the next guys to get on the ice to have a good shift. Roberto Luongo remains out with an injury, expect Reimer to be Panthers' stronghold again on Tuesday.

Julien noted that the first game back after a West Coast road trip is always hard and Drouin said it was odd to come back home and listen to all the negative talk about the team's performance.

"We've had some good opportunities in the last few games but we haven't gotten the goals", said Weber, who is tied with Gallagher for the team lead in goals with three. "It's a step in the right direction". We got a little bit of momentum and we got rewarded on the power play.

Back home, where Montreal was previously winless this season, sparked the team's struggling offence.

Down 1-0, the Canadiens broke it wide open with three goals in 1:35 in the second period.

Multiple league sources have told TFP the Habs are not actively shopping Galchenyuk, but will listen to calls on just about any of their players.

Coach Claude Julien did some changes in Monday's practice by calling up forwards Nikita Scherbak and Michael McCarron from the AHL's Laval Rocket to fill the hole for Ales Hemsky, who sustained a concussion on Friday in Anaheim.

Drouin made another great pass to find Weber open at the top of the faceoff circle for his power-play goal. Then we got into penalty trouble.

"I liked the way we finished the game, especially in the third. Our first two penalty kills were great, then guys started to get exhausted and worn down and the momentum shifted". And though they may have allowed the Panthers some breathing room at times, their effort on Tuesday showed that a consistent night's work would yield them two points in the bank. The Kings are in town on Thursday, and the Rangers visit on Saturday night.
